seems like everyone in the 90s fell in love after 2 tepid convos...as a woman of brain dead experience, i say let's bring that energy back
visually very stunning...the scene at the bar, the bayou, meena's room
very weird politics around the settlement of south asians in Uganda - I understand these things are complicated but man....
definitely a lot easier to get behind the representation of the racial landscape of Mississippi at this time - complex class composition of south asians, conditional + contingent expressions racial solidarity
also honestly kudos to Mira Nair for honestly showing the struggles of an inter-racial relationship that did not involve a white person. i'm not sure about the 90s, but in the present moment indian-white american is not really a stigmatized racial pairing - but brown people make such a big deal about it, like can y'all shut up!
